The people who push diversity training genuinely believe that language structures social reality through subtle, implicit influences, so changing things like making the example on the website be a black woman will either naturally create diversity or reveal entrenched bias.
The above is how you know diversity training is rooted in postmodernist Theory and also how you can be quite sure it won't work. It also shows how it will become an "entrenched bias" club to beat your company over the head with when it doesn't work.
Postmodernist Theory is genuinely an extremely immature model of knowledge, psychology, and sociology, mostly because it ignores what we know about those things whenever it doesn't support Theory. Also because it was devised by people trying to out-avant-garde one another.
